Palm Beach Outfit Recap + Vacation Outfit Ideas

LaurenComment

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I just returned from a dreamy five days in Palm Beach. I won an incentive trip to the Breakers with Beautycounter, and the trip was 100% amazing! I came home refreshed and wanting to live in the South Florida sunshine the rest of Winter. I also came home incredibly impressed with Beautycounter as a company. I already was, but spending a few days with 200 other women who earned this trip + the Beautycounter leadership had me amazed by the caliber of people working and leading this mission-focused business. Head to the end of the post to hear more.

Here’s what I wore in Palm Beach.

If you have a vacation coming up, I highly recommend all of these pieces! I loved each and every one!

Travel outfit. Spanx + Platform Sneaks + the perfect denim jacket make for a super comfy travel look. I love that all these pieces can be remixed for wear during any trip!

Also, I took my new Delsey luggage on it’s first trip and I am so impressed! These suitcases are incredibly light, easy to pack and turn on a dime! Best luggage I have ever carried, hands-down.

If you are looking for a perfect under-$20 tee, I am loving this v-neck by Madewell! I sized up to a medium, and glad I did!

Dinner outfit, Night One. I am absolutely obsessed with this black and gold flowy mini-dress. This is the perfect dress for any date night or girl’s night, and a few of you wrote me on Instagram saying you were buying for a trip to Vegas! I am wearing an XS.

Day Two. Wore this adorable Free People romper/dress for checking into the Breakers and a poolside welcome reception with the Beautycounter team. You may remember me styling this same romper-dress in orange in the Fall. I love it so much I had to have it in another color-way! It’s as comfy as it is cute, and I will be living in it come Spring in Atlanta! I am wearing a size 4.

Swim style. This is one of the cutest suits I have seen in a while, and it’s currently 40% off! It’s super flattering and supportive of larger chests, too!

Dinner Outfit, Night Two. Wore this flirty floral number to dinner at Echo with my Beautycounter team. I absolutely love the colors and fit of this dress…I will wear it this Spring and Summer, too. I am wearing a Small.

Day 3, Beautycounter meetings and an outdoor lunch at the Breakers. I simply love this dress! The fit and colors are amazing, and I love that it looks equally cute and flattering worn with or without a belt. It’s perfect for so many occasions and can be worn day or evening. I am wearing a size Small.

If you don’t yet own a pair of white pumps, I highly recommend investing in a pair going into Spring. I have worn this pair into the ground the past few seasons…they elevate every look from jeans to skirts to dresses. I just found this similar pair that I plan to order since mine are on their last leg! I have found that while pumps tend to sell out in the Spring, so I would encourage you to snag a pair now!

Dinner and Dancing, Night Three. I am telling you, I literally lucked out finding so many dresses I love this trip! I normally don’t love longer dresses on me, but this high-low dress is amazing! It comes with a sash but I belted it instead, to give more of a cinched look around the waist.

Spa Day! I literally spent almost ALL DAY Saturday in my robe at the utterly luxurious Breakers Spa. It was glorious! I got so many questions about these $55 sunnies on Instagram and they actually sold out that day! Thankfully, I found them at another retailer in stock. They are so fun!

Pool Side Lunch Outfit. I changed into this casual ensemble for a pool side lunch with friends mid-way through my spa-day! I always pack a kimono on beach trips since they can double as a outfit over shorts or jeans as well as a swim coverup! This one is affordable and comes in three colors. It has short sleeves, so it stays put!

Another Swim Look. There is nothing better than a classic black one-peice swimsuit! Sadly this one sold out, but I found a similar one with great reviews on Amazon for $16.99!!

Yacht Cruise Dinner, Night Four. I wore this sparkly number for dinner on a yacht the last night of the trip! It was an amazing evening and I loved how comfortable this dress is! I am wearing a size small.

Hope these outfits give you sunny outfit inspiration for either Spring or upcoming trips!

And like I mentioned above, I cannot say enough great things about all things Beautycounter. I learned this week that “Beautycounter” was the most searched for beauty company on Google in 2018! This company and it’s mission are doing big things to disrupt the beauty industry and create safer, better products for the entire family. So many new product launches are coming in 2019, too. If you are interested in joining my team and this movement, I would love to chat! Shoot me an email at lauren@editbylauren.com.

Last but not least, I got a ton of questions on Instagram while on the trip about my makeup. 90% of what I wore was Beautycounter makeup. Stay tuned for a post breaking down exactly what I wear daily, coming soon. In the mean time, feel free to shoot me an email with any specific questions. And this Flawless in Five set is a great place to start overhauling your makeup routine to safer.

Stylishly yours,

All White Kitchen Remodel

2018 was the year of major home renovation. We renovated our entire downstairs + added an addition. Truth be told, our house was torn up for the majority of the year and we were kitchen-less for nearly 6 months. Take my word for it, that is a LONG time to not have a kitchen when you have kids!

Thankfully, our downstairs and newly renovated all-white kitchen is {mostly} complete. I am still working on decor, window treatments and some finishing details, but overall loving how far this space has come. {And that it’s in operating order, again!}

Like I have mentioned in some past posts, this is the same home Mike and I purchased as newlyweds over 11 years ago. It’s certainly not a home I envisioned living in this long, but we have fallen in love with our community around us, where our kids have best friends and constant playmates all up and down our street. So, last year, after a lot of going back and forth about moving to a larger home, we decided to stay put and make our home the best it could be.

Our original kitchen was like most kitchens built 10+ years ago and with a bar-height countertop separating the kitchen from the breakfast nook. My favorite thing we did was tear out that counter to create an oversized island, that now serves as our “breakfast table” as well as central spot for entertaining, and opens up to a new living room addition. {See this post featuring our new living room that we converted out of our old garage!}

To make this kitchen remodel more affordable, we simply painted our existing cabinets since they were in good condition. I chose the same cabinet color as on our walls, Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace.

For countertops, I went with a Calcutta Quartz that resembles marble, but that is much easier to clean and keep scratch-free. With all the kids we have through our kitchen each day, I knew this was not the time of my life to worry about high-maintenance counters!

I have always loved the look of bold gold accents in an all white kitchen. These three oversized Lambert pendent lights by Hudson Valley Lighting were a perfect choice to really set off the island and are one of my favorite kitchen details!

To continue the gold accent theme, I selected this affordable hardware by Emtek that resembles Renovation Hardware but for a fraction of the price. I am so impressed by the weight and quality of these pulls and knobs, and ordered additional ones for our family room cabinets.

I am also 100% obsessed with our backsplash, which is an ultra-shiny hand-created subway tile from Traditions in Tile. {Traditions in Tile has the most amazing selection of all things tile and the on-site designers are a huge help!} An added bonus is that this tile is super easy to wipe and clean! I love how the shine picks up light during the day!

Last but not least, since our kitchen opens into a casual family room, I wanted the space to appear as fluid and open as possible. With this in mind, I found these clear lucite and metallic barstools on Overstock, for a great price {much less than similar ones I had sourced}! I love that they swivel, are easy to clean and hold up great with the wear and tear of kids! They are sturdy, too!

This space, as like most kitchen renovations, took a lot of blood, sweat and tears. I am so happy that it was all worth it to create a new space that is bright and cheery, and become the central spot in our home for casual family dinners, entertaining friends as well as crafts and homework!

The Pop Color All-Season Dress

LaurenComment

Anthropologie dress | Sam Edelman boots | similar hat | Baublebar earrings | similar sunglasses

Happy Monday, friends! Disclaimer, I am not sure how I did this, but I wrote this post on December 12th and realized tonight that it never published! So I am now re-writing parts of this post to make sense now that the Holiday’s are behind us, but the great thing about this dress is that it really does work in any season!

I love finding a dress that can be worn during multiple seasons of the year,, and this fun pop-color one is not only holiday festive…it can be worn straight through the Spring! I love that the skirt has great movement and that it has pockets! This dress can be layered with a faux fur vest or denim jacket, too. It’s flattering and the pattern and bold colors are just SO FUN! I think color is so important to incorporate into a winter wardrobe when everything seems drab, so this dress is a perfect piece!

As far as sizing goes, I would say this dress runs a tad small, especially through the bust. I usually can wear a size 2 in Anthropologie dresses, but I am wearing a size 4 in this one. It’s a longer cut, so perfect for you long-legged gals! If you are shorter than me {5’6 or under}, I recommend getting a Petite.

If you are on the hunt for a great pair of tall boots, I am really loving this pair. They are sleek, comfortable and can dress up or down. These are now on sale and come in three colors…a great staple that you will love for years.

And if you are thinking about how to wear this dress into Spring, a neutral wedge sandal would be perfect!

Stylishly yours,
